BSD sports registration is moving online. Mr Lukich has asked that I share message below and the attached document with families, encouraging all to register SOONER than later. Please keep in mind that registration minus the participation fee is required before participating in formal summer conditioning (which remains on hold for now).

Mr Lukich's message is below:

"Athletics/Activities - New for the 2020-2021 School Year, we are moving to ALL athletic registrations being done online.  This new registration platform will keep student athlete's information in the system through their graduation.  Initially you [will] be asked to fill out his/her personal information such as their full name, birth date, addresses, etc.  Once that is finished you will either fill out one or more registration forms (note: most are auto filling) and then submit and/or you will be asked to upload the Physical Participation Form (if your form is expired or not on record with us).  Additionally, you will register for each sport you plan on participating in and as mentioned earlier, your information will be saved, therefore registering for the 2nd and 3rd sport will be a much shorter process than the first time.

"Those needing a new physical (they are valid for two years from the date of the actual physical) can download the State Required form from this site and take it to a doctor for their examination and signature.  Completed physicals would then be uploaded onto the registration site. 

"Next, either open up the attachment [below] for further instructions OR just go below to begin the process of registering your student athlete .  Thank you!"

InTouch FORM Registration--BSD 2020-21

NOTE: It appears that the option for uploading a physical is NOT working at this time.

Additionally, here is a summary of steps provided by Mr Lukich:

This is a short cut so to speak if you want to skip the information sheet....

Registration for Sports/Activities:     FIRST,     go in to your BSD ParentVUE account and select your student athlete to sign up for their sport during the 2020-2021 school year.     NEXT,                     CLICK on "Register for Athletics and Activities"  and      THEN      choose "the sport/activity" **** From here please complete and submit all the digital forms that you can.  If you can not turn in the School Sports Pre-Participation exam form at this time then that is ok (for the current time) as you will be able to go back in later and submit it once you have it. Miscellaneous #1-  if your student athlete doesn't have a ParentVUE account yet, register for this and I am being told it will take 24 hours before it becomes active. Miscellaneous #2- if you should run into some issues in getting registered let me [] know so we can get these issues solved. Miscellaneous #3- we are still working through some issues with physicals and the registration page being accurate on letting you know it is expired or not.  If needed, ask the coach for the expiration date of the physical on file.  We will also be able to get back to you if something has expired and the page doesn't let you know this.

Best regards,

Coach Neeway

I've been waiting for weeks and weeks to write this message. It's supposed to be a simple message but I can't seem to keep it simple. It's really just a message that explains that we are waiting.

I have been delaying writing this message, thinking that maybe the next day will be the day where we get some clear information about when and how we can start hosting summer conditioning sessions. Each day comes and goes without any new information.

Tom Petty had it right: the waiting really is the hardest part.

Things are starting to come into focus, though. The WIAA (Washington's OSAA) has made a commitment to having a fall sports season. Washington County is in Phase 1 and is looking to apply for Phase II status. The OSAA continues to share guidance on how sports can safely continue in the current environment.

It is my sincerest hope (and increasing belief) that we as Sunset Cross Country will be given license to meet more formally on June 30 or July 1. I get a little bit of a peek behind the planning curtain of both the BSD and the OSAA. In both cases, I am optimistic that summer conditioning meetings will get a green light in the next week or so for that June 30 start date. It won't be "business as usual" but it will be something.

And I am desperate for something. Anything. Something other than text messages, emails, Zoom calls, and anything else digital. Having finished typing this email, I will go back to crossing my fingers.

In the mean time, please get those physical exams in order. They are due every 2 years and are required for summer participation. Here's a link to the form.

If you are new to Sunset Cross Country and interested in getting some training help, please contact Coach Neeway by email.

Go Apollos!

How do I join? Officially, the OSAA and Beaverton School District have their requirements for participation. See the school website for details and forms. Forms and payment must be submitted through the athletic office at school - not to coaches. The athletic office is open before and after school as well as during lunch. (Generally speaking, if an athlete has already participated in a sport in the 2019-20 school year, then no additional forms are required, only the $225 participation fee - which can be paid online. Direct all questions to Mrs Lisa Smith in athletics).

The team requires two forms: an acknowledgement of rules and the planned absence form. These are available here on our website or directly at this link. These forms should be turned in to a coach (not during class!). At practice is fine.

Where does practice take place? We meet on the track. If we are going to begin elsewhere, alternate locations will be posted inside of the exit doors in 3-Hall where workouts are posted.

What do I need at practice? Good shoes and athletic apparel. Remember that it isn't always 70 degrees and sunny during the spring in Oregon. Always be prepared for less ideal weather.

Most other questions are best asked by athletes (and not parents) to their coaches in person.
